Melbourne Polytechnic’s Yarra Edge Nursery in Fairfield features an extensive range of plants for sale to the public, including exotic and Australian native species.

Whether you’re a gardener or simply looking to spruce up your home, our friendly experts can help you add some greenery to your life.

If you’re looking for some quality indoor plants, our glasshouse has a wide variety that will suit any position in your home or office. 

Go to the nursery inventory page to see examples of the plants we sell.

Most of our plant stock is cultivated onsite so we’re able to grow plants that can be difficult to source from other nurseries. Our professionals can also provide advice on your next landscaping project.

Yarra Edge Nursery is a registered Retail and Production Nursery. We’ll happily help you select plants for any location and give you advice on how to plant and maintain them when you get home.

Our nursery completes the education circle for horticulture students. Propagating the plants and propagation management plans are an important part of course work for students in landscaping, parks and gardens, horticulture, and floristry courses.
